15 I was forced to drop another Fauxbook friend last night. With this one I'm down to two buddies that I believe vote D. I could no longer stand the name-calling, ignorant posturing from them, and absolute refusal to consider an position other than their own.

Unsurprisingly - most of the guys and gals I've dropped have been granted advanced degrees in the humanities.

Sad but I don't want the drama or annoyance.

50 in this day and age of TMI, when every detail is instantly released, for better or worse, and everything is caught on someone's cell phone (vertical format) video, it seems very odd how little we know about the overpass collapse in Atlanta. three people have been arrested, but almost no other details.

He would not discuss how the fire was started or why...
...haven't determined the cause...
...even noncombustible materials can still burn...

A man who was watching as a section of Interstate 85 in Atlanta collapsed said he heard several explosions under the bridge and then a slow rumbling as the structure collapsed.

"It was a loud, muted rumble. It was a big sound. You could feel the vibrations"

61 My son played a horrible April Fool's joke on me. He and his fiance are getting married this summer. He told me that she got offered a job at Florida State and decided to take it. That he has no job lined up there, and that she would lose all her vacation days. So they would have to fly into Wisconsin, do the wedding, and fly back to Florida. Meaning they would have to cancel their honeymoon. Which I paid for. I asked him when she has to start. He said April 1st. April 1st.

Aye, there's the rub.

They make it so hard for normal people to stay in their lives.

Recently, a relative told me that pro-lifers do not care about babies and their mothers. I told her that Crisis Pregnancy Centers are all about caring for babies and their mothers. I said nothing negative about lefties, but she responded with an ugly, abusive email about the dasterdliness of all non-leftists in every facet of their lives. It was a virtual fire hazard with all the straw men all over the place.

Particularly disturbing is the lack of self-awareness. She says those nasty conservatives blame the poor for being poor and then heaped disdain on my household because we are less prosperous than she is.

Yeah. I am just overwhelmed by her compassion and lack of judgementalism.

93 For a certain generation of suburban women who might otherwise have natural conservative tendencies, I think there is a kind of PTSD holdover from the media obsession with a few, cartoonish preachers of the 80s who these ladies will forever associate with "the religious right" --as basically hypocritical, drunken Daddies-from-Hell, spun from their internal psychodramas, who want to control their mish in the creepiest possible way.

So it is with the NC 'Bathroom Bill'. The party of Radical Feminism is forced into bed with the assertion of the right of men to use women's restrooms, locker rooms etc.

Then of course, the same sort of logic applies to defending Rachel Dolezal, and, men competing as women in athletic competitions.

At the heart of all of this, of course, is the fact that the Left don't really care about any of it. The active players are just being used for fundraising and the creation of wedge issues that can be used to unravel the structure of civil society, i.e, the destruction of the bourgeoisie.

I think these females are acting out of a deep rage/shame/guilt over their own abortions or those of the dead babies they facilitated. i.e. any female who required her daughter/granddaughter, etc. to terminate the pregnancy.

========================

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools

and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.

They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator.

145 My best April fool's joke was when I was hired into a company on April 1. I did well for a couple years, then my immediate supervisor left and the dept head gave me a ten per cent raise to keep me on, because they were fooked when my boss left.

I stayed but started interviewing because the dept head was a closet lesbian who had weird power trip issues and I felt like I was next on the chopping block.

sure enough, six months after she incentivized me to stay, she terminated me in a way that was designed to humiliate me and strip me of my dignity.

But I foiled them in their attempt to deny me UC benefits. I refused to sign the doc that itemized my alleged transgressions.

So I guess in a small way the joke was on them.

155 So I had parent teacher meeting yesterday in my kids charter school. While waiting for one of our meetings I started reading some "letters" by students posted on the wall outside another classroom (3rd grade). Nothing unusual about that except they were to President Trump to express their opinion about his immigration policy, especially the supposed Muslim immigration ban. No surprisingly each and every one (about 20) of them talked about how horrible it was to keep people out of the country, nation of immigrants, don't be a meanie, don't hate etc... and other Dem talking points. Not a word about national security, terrorism or crime. Not one word.

WTF? Teacher clearly is guiding the students and has an agenda. Wasn't one of my kid's teacher but still pissed me off. Now this is a charter school and is far better than the public schools but I keep running into this type of thing from time to time and always do my best to make sure my kids get other points of view without going into a rant. (My kids still get a heaping dose of Global Warming in their science classes. Very hard to counter that BS I've found.) Seem like the entire educational establishment is completely contaminated. Getting your kids out of public schools is no guarantee they are safe from leftists indoctrination.

Wow. That's really remarkable.

I think it pervades more than just the education system as well. A well-known regional Children's Hospital of which I have some knowledge recently sent out a mass communication to their employees encouraging them to be heroes, 'advocating' for children. Encouraging them to write to their representatives telling them to keep Obamacare in place, because the CBO had estimated decreased federal health care spending of some 880 billion (nearly a trillion) dollars over 10 years if Ryan's plan were enacted. They were to do this "for the children."

Yet, as you pointed out, not one word about where that 880 billion dollars comes from or what it means for the children of families who pay taxes, or what it means to children of future generations. Not a word about unnecessary spending or inefficiencies within the hospital. Just 'grab that federal money' because, it's for the children. Not a word.

I finally figured after several years that out resumes need to be short, to the point and only highlight relevant skills/experience with no BS information in order to get a call. The career experts were mostly pushing the latest trendy things. Now its your extensive travels, ability to work with a diverse group of people and commitment to some core value or whatever as I see a lot of those type of things on resumes anymore.

No, it was entirely about money. It became about big money after they got caught. Per the NHTSA:

"The current penalty for failing to meet CAFE standards is $5.50 per tenth of a mile per gallon under the target value times the total volume of vehicles in the manufacturer's fleet for a given model year."

Nearly a billion in fines from automakers since the mid '80s. Most European companies pay between one and twenty million every year.

Ha! Nice.

I had a 3 day orientation class with civilian counselors that was pretty much "please don't drink and drive and rape and murder and do drugs, you idiot reprobates, we know you will anyway, but at least we can say we told you not to". Once you realized that the counselors had to be understanding and non-judgmental, it was a blast.

"Who can give me an example of something that could be a risky behavior?"

Right on! Knowing the proper way to make guacamole is the perfect analogy for tidying up Washington and getting back to the business of helping people. We really need someone rock-solid like McCain with no skeletons in his closet to distract us from this important work. I for one look forward to moving past all this nonsense once and for all and returning to normalcy.

233 Riley, I admittedly have limited experience, but from what I read on the threads it looks like HR is where the Grievance Studies majors end up.

All I know is that our HR department has taken a perfectly functional workforce and begun harassing us with trainings that are kinda insulting, like we need their guidance in order to not be jerks.

The only people at my campus who need to be trained on how to not be jerks are the ones who can't be fired.

"A Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital held a job open for its accountant while he served a prison term for killing a man, and also hired a convicted child molester and then kept him on the rolls as a health aide while he repeatedly reoffended, The Daily Caller News Foundation's Investigative Group has learned."

Difficult to keep as a domestic pet, though.


Seriously, one summer at Scout camp, the Nature Conservation staff got hold of a hawk chick that had been abandoned by its mother, and we kept it all summer in a YUGE outdoor hawk cage made out of chicken wire. Chicken wire does work for hawks, too.

Great to watch it "hunt" when we let some little mouse into the cage. Same thing as feeding the mice to constrictor snakes in their cages, like Black snakes and Hognose snakes.

wasn't eaten."

I'm always leery of dead rodents around pets, as people throw around warfarin poisoned baits with such casual abandon.


"In any case, the cats are outnumbered. And they're all old. We may need a younger pet that likes to dig."

Never have had success with dogs actually getting moles or gophers. They just completely destroy everything in the process, having themselves a high old time.

You really do need the patient silent hunting cat, and to have it outdoors at all hours.

I feel for you. My textbooks are almost 20 years old and on the rare occasion I use them, the students laugh about how many illustrations show people with crutches, wheelchairs, etc. It was from a time in which "ableism" was the enemy.

Just this week, I had to inform one of my students that Spanish doesn't have the s/he option; the default gender is masculine. She's very bright and picked up the idea because the US materials follow the California and Texas guidelines have to be "sex-neutral" but those from Spanish-speaking countries use their own grammar rules.

Speaking of which, this year I became aware of (or is that "woke to"?) the term LatinX. I don't know how it's supposed to be pronounced, but I like La Tinx because it sounds like a special sort of bladder infection.
